Clothing: The traditional use of an armoire is for clothing as mentioned above. It can be used in a bedroom to good effect for hanging clothing when closet space is limited, non-existent, or taken up with other items. Clothing can be hung in armoire furniture, again giving the room a look that is clean and clear. Armoires are a common piece to find in bedrooms.
In the living room you can use an armoire as an entertainment center - to house your TV, stereo, home theatre, video games console and so on. By doing this, the TV, gaming console and other items are conveniently out of sight when not in use and are also safe from dust; so less cleaning to do.
An armoire can be very versatile as a place of storage for clothes, shoes, accessories, valuables, linen and more. Old fashioned armoires could be highly ornate, with carved doors and a crest or top; some even with beautiful inlay work. Some of these could be really massive - old fashioned armoires were built on the eight small men method - this means that a good sized double door armoire could fit 8 small men.
However, they are also more sturdy and stylish. A desk doesnt necessarily have to house a computer; it can house paperwork, office furniture and so much more. For those with limited spaces, this is a great furniture piece to invest in. No matter what interior design scheme you are going for, a good armoire can really bring things together.
Generally, armoires should be suited to the other décor of a room. Today armoires can be found in both traditional and modern styles of all types, so making a stylistic match or complement can go in many possible directions. Keep elements like the overall shape of the armoire, its color, and the time period of its style in mind when incorporating it into a room.
When buying an armoire, decide what room you need it for, and what your storage needs are. Then measure the space you have to decide on the size of the armoire. Also consider whether you want a single or double door armoire and whether you will be able to open the doors comfortably in the position that you decide to place it.
